Honoring the Cloth…

I’ve been drawn to the making of  ‘slow cloth’

stitches… remnants… threads…

and then I learn…there is a movement of women who are doing the same thing.  Honoring the cloth…it’s past…its stories, and creating new stories with the fragments of all.

…Making Spirit Cloths…

Beginnings of Winter Cloth

Here are some of the small pieces that I’ve been working on for the past few months.

Stacked Small Cloths and Wool Penny Pin Cushion

What is it about the thrill of seeing a pile of work….I guess the feeling of accomplishment, satisfaction for a job well done. 

Hours of stitching time compacted into one small stack!

A Glimpse of Stitches

Now it’s time for Waiting….to Listen to the Whispers of the Cloth

         And what is life? A crazy quilt; Sorrow and joy, and grace and guilt, With here and there a square of blue For some old happiness we knew; And so the hand of time will take The fragments of our lives and make, Out of life’s remnants, as they fall, A thing of beauty, after all.
